BOYS WITH BEARDS & STUDS WITH STACHE: BRIAN O'BRIEN & JUSTIN RUSSO



If you live in New York City or are a regular reader of NEXT magazine, you may have already had the opportunity to read Brian O'Brien's great article from last week, Between Bare and Bear: The Long and Complicated History of Gay Men and Their Facial Hair.  Brian interviewed me for article.  And everyone who has an opinion on gays and facial hair should read it.  The Colby quote is toward the end, essentially giving me the final word on the matter.  Additionally, the beautiful illustrations that accompany the article are from Justin Russo, who has an upcoming show called "The Beard Project" everyone should look out for...(can anyone recognize a well-known Colby photographer in this set of four studly bearded men???).

  1. My one issue with this whole beard trend that seems to be overtaking Gay World is that at nearly 40-years-old, I still can't grow a beard. Le sigh.
